Back in September, Viva el Birdos darling Carlos Martinez wrote in his blog about a glove drive his charity, Tsunami Waves, is holding. From his blog:
I personally have a second mission, and that is to give back to underprivileged kids. As you already may know, I was that kid with no glove and no spikes, but I had dreams of one day playing in the big leagues. Now that I'm capable of giving back, I'm totally involved in this cause.
With my foundation, Tsunami Waves, I donate equipment on a yearly basis to underprivileged kids in my home town Puerto Plata in the Dominican Republic. In efforts to collect as many gloves as possible, I'm starting a glove drive in the St. Louis area that will benefit these kids who are in need.
Last week Carlos posted a photo of the progress:
Carlos is a treasure and I feel incredibly lucky that he is a member of my favorite baseball team.
